Community Service

FEW’s community service activities enable FEW members to explore and utilize their skills for the benefit of others. We organize, support and facilitate community and charitable activities in Tokyo.

Mirai no Mori
FEW Community Service focuses on four key areas
1. Promotion of volunteering and community engagement programs.
2. Awareness raising of key issues both locally and internationally
3. Supporting and raising money for nonprofit organizations
4. Peer Mentorship

To help facilitate this work, FEW has been publishing a Community Services Directory since 1995 where those who are interested in volunteering in the Tokyo Area can find plenty of information. Its latest edition (PDF), published in 2011, contains more than 80 organizations that welcome volunteer help.

FEW’s Community Service Directory has information on organizations, but here we offer some volunteering tips for those of you just getting started. Also be sure to check out our Top 10 Reasons to Volunteer.
